Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The authors provide a comprehensive overview of important topics"—Annals, March 2001

"Gerontologists and psychologists explore concepts that could aid research into intervening to reverse or slow cognitive deficits resulting from old age, and the application of specific cognitive training strategies in natural settings. They look at theoretical principles, rehabilitation strategies in normal and pathological aging, and the interplay between lifestyle patterns and cognitive function. The study is addressed to both researchers and practitioners."—SciTech Book News, June 2000
